We all know that apples are rich in nutritional value, and the vitamin C they contain is the protector of the cardiovascular system. Many people have heard the phrase “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Therefore, many health experts have called apples the “king of fruits.”
According to TCM, apples have the effect of quenching thirst, strengthening the spleen and stomach, moistening the lungs, and benefiting the qi. Eating one apple a day is very beneficial to health. It has been proven that there is a high level of zinc in the healthy prostate fluid, and after the prostate is diseased, the amount of zinc will be significantly reduced. This indicates that the zinc supplement can have a certain therapeutic effect on prostatitis.
The benefits of eating more apples
1. Improve immunity
The vitamin C in apples helps maintain the concentration of red blood cells, stimulates the production of antibodies and white blood cells, enhances disease resistance, and improves the immunity of patients with chronic prostatitis. It is important to note that vitamin C is mainly distributed on the skin of apples, so it is best to eat with the skin. It is important to note that you clean apples carefully and use fruit cleaners or detergents to clean them.
2. Antioxidant and cancer prevention
Apples contain many polyphenol antioxidant components and triterpene nutrients, which can prevent free radicals from causing damage to cells and reduce the risk of cancer. Patients with chronic prostatitis eat more apples, which can be antioxidant, anti-cancer, and prevent disease deterioration.
3. Improve depression
The special aroma of apples can significantly eliminate psychological depression and improve depression. The high content of vitamin C in apples is one of the essential elements for the body to make happy hormones such as dopamine and adrenaline. Chronic prostatitis patients are prone to mental abnormalities and emotional anxiety, and eating more apples can improve their mood.
Apple cider vinegar is a full fermentation of apple juice, which contains a lot of amino acids, acetic acid, and other nutrients that can improve the metabolic ability of prostate patients and help them get rid of inflammatory substances from their bodies. So prostate patients drink 1 - 2 cups of apple cider vinegar daily, which is very helpful in treating prostatitis.
So does that mean apple cider vinegar can cure prostatitis?
It is not. Although apple cider vinegar can help treat prostatitis and relieve the patient’s symptoms, its bactericidal and anti-inflammatory effect is far from enough to clear the pathogens and make the condition recur. So it can only be used as a supplementary treatment. If you want to eliminate the pathogenic bacteria of prostatitis, you should still actively carry out medication. When suffering from prostatitis, take dialectical medicines according to the overall situation to reduce the symptoms.
Worthy of note is that apple cider vinegar is acidic, has an irritating effect on the stomach, and should not be cited by people with stomach problems. Vinegar contains chromium, which can affect insulin substances, and diabetics should not take apple cider vinegar either. So prostatitis patients should not blindly listen to the prescription. They should go to the hospital for examination before determining the treatment plan. Even if there are no gastric disease and diabetes prostatitis patients, do not drink before going to the hospital for review so as not to affect the examination results.
The most common fruit in life is the apple, which has the effect of auxiliary treatment of chronic prostatitis. But eating apples and drinking apple cider vinegar will not cure the disease. Patients should take proper medication and insist on taking TCM Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to help the condition recover soon.
